We understand that this is an extremely worrying time because of the amount of uncertainty around the Covid-19 virus. In order to support families letters are being sent home regularly with the most up to date information regarding the current situation with Covid-19. Copies of all letters can be found within the “Latest new and updates” section of the website.
The current guidance, is that you must stay at home if you have either
· A high temperature – above 37.8 and you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
· A new continuous cough – this means that you have started coughing repeatedly
If someone within your household has either of the above symptoms all the members of the household should remain at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms. You can find more guidance for households with possible Covid-19 at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance
In addition to the regular handwashing and disinfecting high touch surfaces such as tables and door handles, with effect from today the school is taking the following preventative measures:
